Monitoring programs vary across the Reef. Many people are familiar with one or two programs but lack knowledge, understanding and opportunities in others. The Reef Leadership Workshop is a capacity building program enabling the participation of marine science experts and citizen science practitioners in multiple monitoring programs in the Great Barrier Reef. The workshop will enhance your ability to participate in citizen science programs including Reef Check Australia, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authorities Eye on the Reef program and the University of Queensland’s Coralwatch program. All this will take place at the beautiful Orpheus Island Research Station on the Great Barrier Reef as part of Reef Ecologic’s Integrated Coral Reef Citizen Science Program, funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. See www.reefecologic.org/project/gbrf-community/ for full details.

Participants who take this option will not leave Orpheus until the morning of Sept 26. This will be an additional cost of $200 pp which covers accomm, food and dive support for surveys
